Hyperlexicon

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Hyperlexicon is a portmanteau of the words hypertext, hyperlexia, and lexicon. It is also the name of a hypertext labyrinth where the pages are words combined with their definitions, and any word included in Hyperlexicon is a link to its definition page. For some users of Hyperlexicon, its use creates various games, such as trying to find every page of the Hyperlexicon, or trying to find a particular page, or seeing how various pages are connected. Words synonymous with words defined in Hyperlexicon may be linked as well, and this creates some webs of word linkages that get very complicated and revealing.
